Not bad. I can play most of these in real life. Fun songs to play. Even the A7x song is alright. I havn't heard of "Drist" I must check them out. I think you should pick up a real guitar and try to play instead of playing video games though. lol. Just my opinion. But if its a fun game, then by all means, go for it. I like the "Butthole surfers" being involved. Classic. Really, my only complaint is that there is no BLACK LABEL SOCIETY in the game. Oh well, maybe next game. LOL. BLEED BLACK LABEL!!!!!

Not that metal needs to be overpopulated with fly by night fans, but it's nice to see some rock music getting thrown into the videogaming public....Especially rock music that represents so many degrees of heaviness and so many eras and genres.

This is more a good thing than a bad I think....Now if only they would put a Dillinger, Px Dx or AxCx in there....

I'd still love to play Slayer, Arch Enemy or Nile and Behemoth on there, something with the great minor key ominous sounding, I'm-castrating-Satan solos...

There are supposed to be 55 songs in the final product, aren't there? Anyway, I'm still hoping for the likes of Mr. Crowley by Ozzy Osbourne, Tornado of Souls by Megadeth & pretty much anything by Iron Maiden.

I've been wondering if at some point they'd create a bass side feature/second control. a few songs on this version (namely "John the Fisherman") would be perfect
